Tom A. Coburn discusses Breach of Trust: How Washington Turns Outsiders Into Insiders.

—from the publisher's website In Breach of Trust, former U.S. Congressman Tom A. Coburn explores how Washington resists critical reform by co-opting the men and women who seek to change the system. Tom A. Coburn, a congressional maverick who kept his promise to serve three terms and then leave Washington, offers a candid look at the inner workings of Congress—why the system changes politicians instead of vice versa. Breach of Trust shows readers, through shocking behind-the-scenes stories, why Washington resists the reform our country desperately needs and how they can make wise, informed decisions about current and future political issues and candidates.

Along the way, Coburn offers readers realistic ideas for how to make a difference. (timspalding)… (more)
